Did you know you have a cabin filter? Have you changed it?

Many people do not know thier Camaro has one. The passenger compartment air filter removes most of the pollen and dust from the air that enters the vehicle. The filter will need to be replaced periodically. Should be replaced every 12 months or Maint II service. Using the climate control system without an air filter installed is not recommended. Water or other debris could enter the system and result in leaks or noises. Always install a new filter when removing the old filter.

Here is how you change it out

Remove the passenger side wiper cowl (held in place by a few push retainers Item 1 retainers item 2)
Remove the passenger compartment filter door. (Thin door see picture below item 10)
Pull out the filter and install a new one (item 9)

All this takes about 5 minutes and will make the air coming through the vents a lot easier to breathe especially during allergy season.

Great write-up.
I changed mine after 6 months, live in Richmond, Va. The pollen season here is unbelievable, ends about mid May. Yellow everywhere so thick you can almost shovel it. Some years are worst than most, last year was a Bit&$.

Yep, almost all cars have them now a days. But, honestly, I've never changed one in any car I've owned.

You are so right about the pollen last year.

I bet all GM cars have them. My '06 Impala has one and I've changed it a couple of times.

GREAT idea!

I was over at a friends house the other night and he showed us the cabin filter he just changed out on his G8 GT. DIRTY! And it was only a year old. I think it's about time I get a new one for mine.

Thanks for showing us how!

Depends. Shipping has to be factored in. Last week I priced part # 92229384 with both places, including shipping. gmpartshouse.com was $14.51 to my door. gmpartsdirect.com, although the part was a dollar less, was $16.53 to my door. "Cheaper" is always a relative term.
